This apricot berry fizz has definitely been the flavor of the week at our house. My husband (Vadim) made this awesome drink. It’s 3-fold and it makes one amazing bubbly beverage: 1. Apricot Concentrate 2. Berry flavored ice cubes and 3. Club Soda.

Combining the three makes the most tantalizing apricot punch. Prep all the ingredients ahead of time and mix it up for a party or drink it all week long.

Apricot Concentrate:

4 lb apricot
1/3 cup sugar
1 quart water (4 cups)

Flavored Ice Cubes:

2 cups blueberries
3 cups strawberries
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar

Club Soda
Ice Trays

How to make Apricot concentrate:

1. Wash apricots, pit and cut into halves. Place apricots in a large pot, fill it with 1 quart of water and bring to a boil.

2. Simmer over low heat until soft but not mushy for around 30 min.

3. When finished, strain the mixture through cheesecloth or an OXO strainerΒ and add 1/3 cup of sugar to the juice.

4. Place juice on the stove and simmer for 5 more minutes. Take it off the stove and let it cool

How to make Blueberry-strawberry ice cubes:

1. Bring washed strawberries and blueberries, 1 cup water and 1/3 cup of sugar to a simmer in a medium pot.

2. Cook on low heat until soft, stirring occasionally, around 20 min.

3. Strain mixture through the cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer (we use and love the OXO strainerΒ and let it cool.

4. Pour into ice molds and freeze it.

Before serving, place 1-2 blueberry/strawberry ice cubes in a cold glass, add some apricot concentrate and at last pour some sparkling mineral water on top. We used about 1/3 cup concentrate and 2/3 cup club soda. Enjoy
